The Patterns of Love

The Patterns of Love don’t work like they used to

These days you smash out, and never again with the same dude

Men are congratulated for being womanizers

Women are applauded for being whores

Being comfortable with your sexuality

Yet afraid you’ll contract a disease

You learn as a child you’re born with a curse. virginity

Dragging it around, afraid that people will see

"Practice safe sex with condoms, or birth control,

Just don’t get pregnant before you’re 25 years old.”

I live in a nation of contradiction and fallacy

Lies, indecency, deception, that’s all I see

Even the honest ones are rotten.

The virtues that were once so familiar are forgotten.

An afternoon with a Frat bro

Tony: Hello, this is my interview of Daniel Morales for the ZBT Gamma Beta CSUN page. This is to further understand what fraternal bonds mean, and what being in a fraternity means to CSUN students like Daniel Morales. Hello Daniel!

Daniel: Hi! Nice to be here.

Tony: You’re about to be in your third year at CSUN and, how has your journey been so far? Outside of Greek Life.

Daniel: A lot of fun actually. I spend a lot of time doing homework, in general, but I choose a lot of classes I’m interested in and those classes just drive me to do better, academic-wise. And I just get it done.

Tony: That explains a lot! To CSUN Students with less than satisfactory grades, what would you tell them to improve their GPA’s?

Daniel: I say it’s all about how your schedule works, because I do have a social life despite having great grades. Let’s say I have a three page paper to write. I can get a three page paper done, and if I don’t I guess I can’t go to hang out. But I’ll get it done because I want to hang out that badly. And if you have your priorities straight, you’ll get it done, so you don’t have to just sit at home working on your paper while you could be doing something fun.

Tony: Right, sounds simple enough, but some people just don’t implement this sort of thinking.

Daniel: Oh definitely.

Tony: But it shows, you have a 3.8 GPA?

Daniel: It’s actually gone down a bit, I have a 3.7 GPA.

Tony: People out there reading this, you should really listen to the wise words of Daniel Morales. He has a 3.7 GPA, in college, while having a substantial social life, and being in a fraternity.

Tony: Come Spring of 2012, you actually rush a fraternity, now tell me some of your reasoning behind why you came?

Daniel: It was actually something I was never really thinking about. I thought about it briefly but it was a new learning experience. One of the brothers asked me if I wanted to come, and I came by and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Tony: Okay, so fast forward to today. What have you gained from being in a fraternity?

Daniel: I’ve gained a healthy respect for myself, for ideas behind politics and business, how to talk to people. How to talk to people without being awkward. How to speak business. A lot of social skills. Knowing how to talk, and what words to say. Small stuff, but it made all the difference to my confidence. 

Tony: Now I, being in your class as a New Brother in Spring of 2012, I remember you were not the most sociable guy when we were first initiated. But you definitely built upon that a lot, and you’re a pretty cool guy now.

Tony: What does being in a fraternity mean, and what do fraternal bonds mean to you?

Daniel: Being in a fraternity to me is being where you know you should be at the time. It’s knowing that this is a place that everyone is coming together to learn on their own accord. Fraternal bonds are some of the dearest to me, because these are people who come from all different walks of life who I’ve learned about, learned from, and they’re people I wouldn’t trade for anything, because they have improved my experience as a human being a lot.

Tony: Our friends out there who share no affiliation with Greek Life, they say that we pay for our friends. Would you say that’s correct? Or wrong? And if it’s wrong, what is wrong about it?

Daniel: It’s not so much paying for your friends, because when you’re hanging out with your friends you still end up paying for food, and gas. It’s a little more expensive because we have a place to live, and a lot of things are provided to us to enhance our experience. 

Tony: Right and there’s some things about being in a fraternity that you can’t pay for. Like the bond and the familiarity I share with Daniel. That kind of stuff, money cannot buy.

Tony: Okay so during the time that I’ve been here, I’ve gone through some rough times. Life is not always good. We have our ups and downs. Would you say being in this fraternity has helped you go through the trials and tribulations of life?

Daniel: Definitely. When I was initiated, I was on a down, a major down. I didn’t expect much solace from anyone, but when I joined, everyone in the house helped me overcome it. And as much as I’m prone to falling, I see other brothers falling to hard times, and I feel like I want to return the favor.

Tony: So in that sense you’ve been through a lot of personal and emotional growth.

Daniel: Most definitely.

Tony: Okay so let’s bring it back to when we were newly initiated brothers of ZBT. We’ll do this thing where I describe what you were like, and you’ll describe what I was like, and I’ll describe what you’re like now, and you’ll do the same for me.

Tony: Okay so, Daniel Morales. When he was just initiated, in the Spring of 2012. He was very shy, very awkward, and very nerdy. A band geek. Funny guy but again, awkward. If there was one word I could use to describe Daniel is awkward. Now what was I like when I was just initiated?

Daniel: Shy. Quiet. Very, very quiet.

Tony: Damn really?! No way! xD

Daniel: You had one word answers for everything. One word. If I asked how was your day, you would answer, “Meh.” It took me three weeks to get a full length conversation out of you, and it was the best day ever. That’s how I felt about you.

Tony: Damn really? I feel like I talk too much now.

Daniel: Now you’re loud, and you’ve definitely improved your work ethic. You have a better understanding of who you are, and you definitely are more opinionated than you were then. And you definitely speak your mind more.

Tony: Daniel now, is very sociable, awesome guy to be around. Very fun. If you’re ever having a bad day, he’ll make it better. Super fun guy. Funny, the most like snarky sense of humor but it’s funny. I personally find him one of the funniest guys in ZBT. Honest to god. Now he’s going to the University of Massachusetts, very intelligent, one of the hardest working guys, if not, the hardest working guy in this house. There is not a brother I can think of that works harder than Daniel, in my opinion. Overall, the personal growth is astonishing to me. The person you were then, and the person you are now is just night and day.

Tony: Last Question. Let’s say I’m rushing a fraternity, why should I join ZBT?

Daniel: Our house is great because there are so many different types of people that you’ll meet, that you never knew you would have gotten along with. And you’ll learn from so many different types of people. And it definitely helps in your personal growth. There’s just so much to do and when you’re out of college and you need a job, you have so many more options to choose from, and a wider variety of connections. Our house is a great hub of learning, and leaders. We cultivate great leaders. Some of the best and wisest people I know come from this house. I could not have seen myself joining any other house because of that.

The American Fraternity

The fraternal experience is most always tied to American society’s idea of a “frat boy.” Half drunk, failing school, and partying every chance he gets. I think the normal American person thinks of a fraternity as an organization that you join so you can “pay to make friends.”

Say what you will, but from what I have experienced, being a part of a fraternity is being part of an organization where you have 50 or 60 colleagues who joined for one reason. To become the leaders of tomorrow. 

It’s great to be a ZBT

Being Home Alone

After being home and away from people for a while, you get used to being alone. And solitary confinement is almost nothing. You believe that all you need to be happy is yourself. And while this is largely true where independence is a marketable trait, having company is never so bad.

I guess I’m saying, that people are social creatures. And while spending time alone brings peace & quiet, spending time with other people is so much more stimulating

The Morning After

After all is said and done

And you wake up and don’t remember much

You think upon the night

And you ask, “Did I have a great time?”

I ask, “Was it worth shortening the span of my life?”

Probably not. But you know what?

That’s alright.

THE PHENOMEN OF THE BLACK EYED CHILDREN.
Imagine this. You and your better half are on your way home after a late night out on the town. You pull into a convenience store, and you wait in the car while he runs in for something. You’re sitting there in the dark waiting for him to return when suddenly you get an inexplicable, overwhelming feeling of terror. You sit up a little straighter and glance toward the driver’s side window. There staring in at you are two children – but not just any children. These are “Black Eyed Children,” and they want to get into the car with you.
Sound like something from a horror movie? Well, it’s not. It’s as real as it gets. According to David Weatherly, a paranormal investigator and author, who has written a book called “Black Eyed Children,” incidents or visitations by these strange children are occurring worldwide. They have one simple request, they want to come in. They appear on doorsteps, at car windows, hotel rooms and even boats.
Witnesses report these weird children asking to come into the house to use the phone or for a ride home because they’re lost or they forgot something. They speak in a demanding monotone and regardless of what is said to them, they don’t say much more than “Let us in. We won’t hurt you. This won’t take long.”Weatherly says there are thousands of reported sightings of these Black Eyed Children. Sometimes they travel in pairs, sometimes in groups and sometimes you’ll see just one. They knock on doors and tap on windows all over the world, asking to be let in.
Their most outstanding feature is their solid black eyes, eyes completely void of color or light, showing no pupils, no irises. Witnesses say looking into these eyes evokes intense feelings of terror.
Could they be wearing black contact lenses? Weatherly agrees that this may be true in some cases; however, black lenses covering the entire surface of the eye would not only be expensive, but extremely uncomfortable.
These strange Black Eyed Children, who can appear or vanish at a moment’s notice, seem to be between the ages of 8 and 16. Their skin is pale or pasty colored, described by some as looking plastic or artificial, and their mannerisms are odd. Witnesses describe their clothing as odd and drab – blue jeans and a hoodie or very old-fashioned, handmade clothing. Bizarre electrical phenomena occurs when they are around, such as a garage door inexplicably opening.
When a man in Dallas arrived home, he saw a boy at his door who repeated “I think it’s food time. You should invite me inside.” The man’s protective pit bull came running toward the front door, but as it got closer to the boy, it whimpered and ran away, hiding under the bed for days afterward.
A man named Paul was home alone when someone knocked on this door. He opened it and saw two kids about 10 years old standing on his steps with their heads down. They said, “Hey, we just thought we’d stop in for a bit.” The kids insisted they be let into the house. Thinking they had the wrong house, Paul stepped forward to get a better look and made eye contact. Their eyes were solid black, including the sclera.
Jason Offutt, another researcher into the Black Eyed Children phenomenon, gives this account:
Around 10:45 on a warm night, as 18-year-old Carris Holdsworth approached her apartment in Lisburn, Northern Ireland, she saw two teenagers in hoodies and jeans standing in her yard with their backs to her. As she attempted to slip away unseen, she fumbled in her purse for pepper spray. At that very moment, the boys turned to face her and, as if reading her mind, one said, “No need for that, we just want to borrow your phone, miss.” When she caught a glimpse of their pitch black eyes, not a trace of white or a pupil, she panicked and raced to her apartment, locking the door behind her. The boys following close behind, knocked on her door. She ignored it. After a second knock, fearing for her safety she phoned a friend to come over. When the friend arrived, the boys ran away.
What exactly is this growing phenomena? Who are these sinister appearing black-eyed children? Are they inter-dimensional beings who feed off the energy of fear they create. Are they be alien-human hybrids. Are they demonic entities? Are they simply a modern urban legend born of the computer age?
Weatherly believes they may have some sort of demonic origin because in some reports these black-eyed children vanish into thin air, and some witnesses report a run of bad luck after an encounter with these children.
World starts to get more like a horror movie.

Evil needs an invitation in; so I agree with the demonic aspect as vague as it may be.

It became love when I counted how many of her tear ducts fell onto my left hand while I rubbed her thigh. And I started to care the moment I watched the corners of her mouth poke the apples of her cheek. She was my first real orgasm and I knew she’d be the last to break me. I’ve seen her tremble…
